OnSSI, Spectra Logic form tech partnership
OnSSI and Spectra Logic have formed a technology partnership designed to deliver OnSSI’s Ocularis 5 Video Management System (VMS) combined with Spectra Logic’s Spectra Verde Network Attached Storage (NAS) platform. The combined solution delivers VMS and storage technology providing long term retention of video surveillance data.
Verde NAS uses Spectra Logic’s implementation of ZFS software-based RAID combined with the latest disk technology to bring new life to long-term high-density bulk storage. Verde NAS is designed for ease of deployment, operation, management and expandability in a small footprint that is available in 2U and 4U models. Additionally, Verde NAS helps to ensure maximum data security by using multiple layers of protection and redundancy.
Ocularis 5 is a VMS with PSIM functionality including centralized management of physical security and content analytics to deliver an integrated platform with enhanced recording and camera management. It features automatic load balancing for managing recordings across system servers. Ocularis 5 also allows for multiple recorders to be combined under the same Base (including legacy Ocularis 4.X recorders) with centralized user and event management.
Ocularis is offered in three models: Professional, designed for organizations operating multiple locations with small to mid-sized camera counts; Enterprise, built for a wide range of mid to large IT-centric organizations; and Ultimate, created for large organizations with extended command and control needs and recording server failover.
OnSSI and Spectra Logic are currently working on interoperability testing for Spectra Logic’s entire Verde product line.
